The Worldwide Market for Dialysis Equipment, Supplies, and Services

The dialysis industry enjoys a unique space in healthcare sector. The industry has its feet spread across the two most lucrative segments of the sector viz. medical devices industry (dialysis products and supplies segment) and healthcare services industry (dialysis services segment). Needless to say, the dialysis industry remains a robust, nearly $50 billion global industry that has managed to fuel its growth engine with a modest, but respectable 6% to 7% rise growth rate in the past 5 years. The aspect that makes this market both interesting and challenging is its relatively small and stable customer base; a mere 1.2 million patients form its universe. But of course, these are high-value and highly valued customers, with each customer worth an average of $39,000 per year. The stable customer base also explains the fact that the dialysis industry came out unscathed during the recent economic downturn across the globe.
